Homework Help: Free Fall question

  1. Jan 16, 2017 #1
    When throwing a ball, a student has a friend time how long it takes the ball to reach the maximum height. Before they start the experiment, the friend predicts: “If you throw the ball faster, the ball will reach the highest point in less time.”
    Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why or why not?

    If you disagree, how would you correct it?

    I predicted that it would not reach the highest point in less time because gravity would be the only force acting on the ball once the ball leaves his hand. Help??
